Bee Auction 2021

Join the Bees of Bee Cave Benefit Auction online! Bidding occurs through December 12, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.
Do you need an artist-designed Bee for your home or garden, your school, office, shopping center, clubhouse or apartment complex? Then, this event is one you won’t want to miss. Each “Bee” sculpture has been individually designed by a different artist, and painted with a special blend that withstands outdoor conditions. These sculptures are long lasting and gorgeous. In addition, a book discussing the project and each artist is available.
Visit us at The Hive at Hill Country Galleria to see the Bees in person! Open Wednesday through Saturday from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. (and you can see the Bees through the windows of The Hive anytime). Reach out by email with questions ( Thank you!
Funds generated through “Bee” auction will go toward greatly needed scholarships for local high school students, educational programming, community projects, and the artists who created these wonderful sculptures. Your support is greatly appreciated!
